Eight of us put a few small tables together inside to get a quick dinner. Had we arrived 10 minutes later we would not have been able to do that. The room inside and outside is quite limited. We didn't have to wait too long for our food but others that came after us had to wait. Our server handled... More

We had the fire rock and bahia shrimp plates. Lots of shrimp and sauce with rice. The garlic and spice smell is amazing as is the test. They have a few tables outside but this place is mainly a takeaway place but there are several areas you could sit within the shopping center to enjoy your food.

Savage Shrimp is one of the best values on Kauai. Fresh shrimp made when order is placed. Fried, garlic, broiled shrimp are all great and the Fish and Chips are great too! Cole slaw is excellent. Not fancy, just great shrimp and a wonderful meal at a great price.

This was just what I was looking for on Kauai. I had the garlic spicy shrimp with the pineapple and it was mouthwatering! A plate comes with 2 scoops of rice and a bit of cabbage. They put the sauce from your shrimp on the rice too, which ties the whole dish together. Its a small place with a few... More

Nothing much to say but great shimp and good prices. The shrimp tacos are excellent. The Spicy garlic shrimp is also outstanding. Needless to say, as a shrimp lover, I can eat here everyday.

We had a reservation at Tortilla Republic but when seated realized it felt like 100 degrees with no breeze or fan so elected to leave. We stumbled upon Savage Shrimp and enjoyed a great meal. If you like shrimp you will finding many thing to love.

Savage shrimp used to be a food truck, but has now taken a brick and mortar spot in the Kukuiula shopping center. We had lunch here several times and the shrimp was ALWAYS perfectly prepared . . . and, we know our shrimp! The staff are all very friendly and accommodating and the food is "made to order." So, if... More

I had read reviews of Savage Shrimp and they were pretty universally good so we decided to give it a go. I was a little surprised (when we walked by it on the way to another restaurant the night before we ate here) to see that it was really a small place with a few tables inside, a few tables... More

I had read about this place during my research for our trip to Kauai. All I can say is, WOW! Our family of four each ordered a different style of shrimp. They were all delicious! I chose the Bahia Shrimp. It was so delicious. This place is a must!!!
